The preparatory course in English aims to improve knowledge and skills related to reading, writing, speaking and listening with the objective to fully prepare international students for academic courses taught in English. After completing the course, the student will be able to account for the main content as well as details in both speech and writing, using relatively clear and coherent language. The course has been designed specifically to meet the needs of non-native English speakers who wish to develop their English language competencies and be able to communicate effectively in an academic environment. The course gives eligibility equivalent to English 6 (B2 in the Common European Framework of Reference) for further studies at Linnaeus University. Please note that all universities have their own requirements.
